August 12th, 2009
Christian’s Hoard’s best new music pick for the week — a little thing we call “Christian Rock” in the New Music Report — is Golden Silvers. These stylishly underfed guys are Hoard’s new favorite English band. On True Romance, they hearken back to new wave, but rather than grab from jittery post-punk, Golden Silvers look more to white soul, busting out harmonies and loads of warm keyboards. Their album does include a post-punk rocker (”Shakes”) ...
